    I can't delete any files of any kind on my Atrix 2

    I've tried a couple of different file management systems, including Astro and File manager, but no matter what I try, I can't delete pictures, documents, or files of any type. I get an error message that just says, "Error deleting file", or Can't delete file", or nothing at all happens in the case of a picture when I hit the delete button.
    Is this a known bug, or has anyone else run into this?

    Try a battery pull for five minutes. Reboot the phone and see if it works.

    In the first software version of the A2 it had some pretty big problems with the sd card, one of which was that the sd card would randomly just mount as read only. A power off+battery pull+reboot should temporarily fix the problem.

    What Android version are you on (Settings -> About Phone -> Android Version)? 2.3.4 or 2.3.6?

    I know that the latest update did fix a lot of sdcard problems but some are still buggy. Do you just use the stock sdcard or have you replaced it with something else?

    Several way of doing this. I prefer connecting with USB to my computer, using MotoHelper and browsing the pictures and deleting them on a full sized monitor. If you want to just delete them on your Atrix, another way is to use your files app, find dcim, and then browse and delete your files.

    Try taking a picture....does it save to ur sdcard and can u view it properly. If not then Cogeary's theory is right. If so, I would back up all ur apps and do a factory reset. Let us know what happens.
